New Music: Frank Ocean Teams With Diplo And The Clash On ‘Hero’


/ March 10, 2014

Converse Music has brought another talented trio together in the name of music. Frank Ocean has come out of oblivion and teamed with DJ gawd Diplo and The Clash for the funky new folk song “Hero.” It took some swaying on D’lo’s part, telling Noisey, “I spoke to him and played him what we had … It wasn’t easy but when he’d heard the track he felt it was right.” While the record offers a different texture than all artists are used to, Ocean’s smooth vocals, Mick Jones and Paul Siminon’s punk influences and Diplo’s live instrumentation make for a rock star collabo.
